When I was a little kid, a baby around two or three, I used to get so utterly frustrated that I'd bang my head on the floor repeatedly. I'd crouch down in a squat and then put my head between my legs and clunk away. Hard. It's my earliest memory and I can almost still feel it. As I got older and more frustrated I'd hit my fists solidly against my head. I'm at the same place now but it's not socially acceptable to start smashing my cranium on the terra firma. Besides it's carpeted here, so what's the use?
